Dear doctor, kidney stone. Doctors advised to drink more water. My dad drank more water as kidney passed to urethra, but not passing out from 7 days.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Stones

Water can help a stone pass, but doesnt always work.
Depends on stone size and location....If no passage after 7 days...See a urologist for further testing.

In brief: Very painful

Since I am familiar with this horrible scenario, suggest you seek local urologist, as stones getting lodged and not passing through can be handled via cystoscopic stenting, and it works terrifically well.
